Opinion: The House Is Listening to the Wrong People for Climate Solutions

April 16, 2021

It is a sad time in Maryland, as the major climate bill of the 2021 General Assembly session failed to pass. The Climate Solutions Now Act, as originally passed in the Senate on March 12, was a strong and multi-faceted solution to the climate crisis in Maryland. The House heavily amended the bill in early April, sat on it until almost the end of session and then passed it and sent it back to the Senate with only days remaining to negotiate the very substantial differences. In the end, the House failed to accept any compromise on the bill and left Marylanders with no real path forward during the most existential and disastrous crisis it has ever faced.
